For Walmart, there is an inconsistency on engagement post-to-post. While there are some posts that receive over 40k in total engagements, there are others have trouble breaking 1,000. This signals that the company is paying for Page Post Ads or Promoted Posts for certain updates. The page creates an average of six posts per day.

Unlike the rest of the pages this week, White Magick Alchemy is a niche page, but has gone viral with one post accounting for the majority of the page’s engagement for the week. The post about a wildlife biologist saving a tranquilized bear received 146k likes since it was posted, but is not directly related to the business’ line of products. The page has characterized itself as animal activists, but it is unlikely the page will sustain this type of engagement since it is such a specific interest.
